Noosa, or Noosa Heads, is a town about 140 kilometres north of Brisbane along Queensland's Sunshine Coast and has just under 4,000 inhabitants.
Noosa mostly refers to the entire area, with Noosa Heads just being part of it, and Noosaville and Noosa Junction being the other two. The northern boundary is the Noosa River, south is the Noosa National Park. To be short: it is a lot of Noosa confusion, but here it refers to the entire area.
